"Mas há também, e não vale a pena esconder nem esquecer isso, aqueles momentos de solidão e de morno desespero; aquela surda saudade que não é de terra nem de gente, e é de tudo […] Mas então as bobagens do estrangeiro não rimam com a gente, as ruas são hostis e as casas se fecham com egoísmo, e a alegria dos outros que passam rindo e falando alto em sua língua dói no exilado como bofetadas injustas. Há o momento em que você defronta o telefone na mesa da cabeceira e não tem com quem falar, e olha a imensa lista de nomes desconhecidos com um tédio cruel"
Rubem Braga, a viajante
” I have a lot of memories of people. People I’ve lost forever. But I have a lot of other memories too. This is the place where I fell in love. The place where I found my family. This is where I learned to be a doctor. Where I learned how to take responsibility for someone else’s life. And it’s the place where I met you. So I figure this place has given me as much as it’s taken away from me. I’ve lived here as much as I’ve survived here. It just depends on how I look at it. I’m gonna choose to look at it that way, and remember you that way.”

“They say death is hardest on the living. It’s tough to actually say goodbye. Sometimes it’s impossible. You never really stop feeling the loss. It’s what makes things so bittersweet. We leave little bits of ourselves behind, little reminders, a lifetime of memories, photos, trinkets, things to remember us by… even when we’re gone.”

"It isn’t just death we have to grieve. It’s life, it’s loss, it’s change. And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, it has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime. That’s how you stay alive when it hurts so much you can’t breathe. That’s how you survive. By remembering that one day somehow, impossibly, it won’t feel this way. It wont hurt this much."
